Rural Services Directory.
Hudder, Jean Anne W.; Lammonds-Harwood, Pamela
The directory details formal and informal agencies and organizations and the programs and projects through which they provide services to rural populations in the United States and its territories. The book gives the level at which a program is offered, its primary focus, and its target population. The book's major divisions are based on program level: federal (administered by the United States government); national (organized nationwide with a professional service motive); regional (resulting from the union of several states with a common purpose); state (meeting needs of the state's population); local (operating in multicounty, county, or local areas to serve needs of people residing in the immediate locale); and private (serving via foundation, trade, or non-public means). Each major division contains a matrix showing each agency's type, functions, and target population (by age, ethnic background, and need or disability), and whether the effort is a collaborative venture. A list of the names and addresses of the agencies at that level follows the matrix. In the state and local level section, states and territories are organized alphabetically within federal regions and programs are organized alphabetically within state or territory. A map of the federal regions is included. (Author/SB)
